William Gregory, has been managing Harpeth Hills Memory Gardens in Nashville, Tennessee for his family since 1978. Today Harpeth Hills is the only family owned cemetery in Nashville, Tennessee.
We began our expansion in 1990 when we built our first funeral home on the grounds at Harpeth Hills. In 1995, we built West Harpeth Funeral Home and Crematory in West Nashville.
We continued our expansion in 2002 when we purchased Joelton Hills Memory Gardens (formerly Woodlawn North) and Hendersonville Memory Gardens (formerly Woodlawn East). Shortly following that purchase we began construction of our third funeral home on the grounds of Hendersonville Memory Gardens allowing us to serve the funeral and cremation needs of the families in Hendersonville.
Our philosophy is simple: provide the same level of care we would desire for our own family. It is gratifying to know that 100% of our families surveyed would recommend Family Legacy and their family of funeral homes and cemeteries to others.
We continue to strive to become even better, with constant improvements in service, facilities and merchandise, while staying moderately priced. In a climate of world-wide corporate mergers, it is comforting to know that when your family’s greatest time of need arises Family Legacy will be here for you.
"We are committed to providing personalized service for all families with compassion, dignity, and respect while exercising the highest ethical standards and practices; promoting the Family Legacy properties for their quiet beauty and serenity as places of lasting tribute to the memories of those entrusted to our care; and promoting the value of selecting funeral, cremation and cemetery services in advance of need."
A Dedicated Staff
Our staff associates are involved in the betterment of our community by being active in their churches, schools, charitable causes, and community organizations.
You will find that our staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and low-key. We sincerely care about the people we serve and in doing things right. Our service to you continues in the months beyond the funeral ceremony through our extensive aftercare program and our special events, including our Easter Services, Memorial Day Services, our Tree of Memories and Candelight Services. See our Special Events page for our calendar of events.
We also offer a complete pre-planning service which locks-in the cost and provides the peace of mind that the plans you make today will make things so much easier for your loved ones.
We are members and meet the standards of the Better Business Bureau, Chamber of Commerce, Cremation Association of North America, Tennessee Funeral Directors Association, Cemetery Association of Tennessee, Southern Cemetery and Funeral Association, National Funeral Directors Association, International Cemetery Crematory and Funeral Association, and Selected Independent Funeral Directors.
You can view photos of our staff and find links to email them directly from our site by selecting a department from the 'About Us' menu.
We encourage people to visit our facilities, meet our staff, and compare. We emphasize personal service where there is usually just one person who follows through from the arrangements to the services. We comfortably carry out services for all religious denominations and cultural beliefs. All of our embalming and preparation is done at our facility and not centralized like some large corporate-owned funeral homes.
We have never turned a family away for a lack of money. People come before profits. We help young families at a difficult time when they lose an infant by providing our funeral services at no cost to the family.
We offer the widest range of options available, while staying moderately priced. Other funeral homes charge extra for basic register books, acknowledgment cards, and refrigeration (if cremation). In addition to providing this at no extra charge, we provide stamps for acknowledgment cards, delivering the plants to the home after the service, and our grief support program Caring Voices™.
As death care professionals, every day that we come to work we have the opportunity to make important differences in people's lives. Quite simply, this is our goal. We back up our service with a complete guarantee. Perhaps this is why we are the only firm to put our guarantee to you in writing.
